21+ Nights

All those who have ever wanted to enjoy Carnegie Science Center without having to elbow 8-year-olds out of the way for a chance to compete against the Air Hockeybot or peer at the baby seahorses, will not want to miss 21+ Night at Carnegie Science Center.Tickets for the event are $10 (in advance, $15 at the door) for adults over the age of 21. 

Check out the upcoming events:

Friday, September 18th  

Explore the binary world of robots – with Pittsburgh's famous robot HERB (Home Exploring Robot Butler)! Check out roboworld®, the world's largest permanent robotics exhibition, snap a selfie with C-3PO, and challenge a robot to a game of air hockey.

Program a robot to make works of art or to navigate a maze. Brush up on your binary and make a coded bracelet to take home. Try your skills and grab as much candy in 55 seconds using a fully articulated claw machine built from an Arduino and basic 3D printer parts. 

Put your ears to the test, and see if you can tell the difference between music composed by humans and music composed by machines. Resonance Works artists will play a blind musical "taste test" to find out if you can hear the difference between the obviously inferior human-based melodic entertainment and the computer-made masterpieces of our beloved robotic overlords.

Carnegie Mellon University's HERB, one of the robot stars from the film, will be on-site at the event to meet visitors! Mix and mingle with other robots from CMU labs including Biorobotics Laboratory whose research focuses on snake robots.

Enjoy live music from local band "Nameless in August."

As always, 21+ Night features cash bars, music, and a chance to experience 4 floors of exhibits! More information at
